Dalas, TX, USA — DRS Technologies evolves its popular Tamarisk®320 line of micro thermal imagers with the introduction of its Tamarisk® Precision Series for general purpose radiometric detection and imaging.
Complete with robust features such as temperature ICE-o-Therms™ for delineating multiple regions with user defined color parameters, dynamic range switching for optimal performance from -40 °C to 550 °C and adjustable spotmeter for rapid temperature measurement.
With innovative detector design and precision calibration Tamarisk® now offers accurate radiometric temperature data coupled with its unparalleled image quality.
Designed for applications that require both accurate temperature measurement and superior image quality, Tamarisk® Precision Series is equipped with DRS’ patented infrared sensor technology, expert calibration and new developer tools for greater flexibility, customization and integration for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
The Tamarisk®320 Precision Series, with its 17-micron pitch, proprietary infrared sensor architecture and 320×240 resolution, offers a means to remotely locate and identify key temperature variances in a given scene.
The product includes new features for user-defined color parameters and a real-time temperature readout for swift and accurate decisions.
This functionality is a common requirement of electrical and mechanical test and measurement, building inspection, medical diagnostics, fire detection, dual-purpose surveillance and process monitoring, and a host of other applications.
“Our customers essentially wrote the requirements for our new Precision Series radiometric cores,” said Gregory Christison, Senior Director of DRS Commercial Infrared Systems.
“Through the success of our Tamarisk® uncooled thermal cores, we’ve come to understand the value that our OEM customers place on flexibility in their design process. To deliver on this challenge, our radiometric cores maintain the compatibility and high quality standards that our customers have come to expect while introducing another degree of functionality.”
Fully backwards compatible with the current line of Tamarisk®320 thermal cores, Tamarisk®320 Precision Series offers an expanded radiometric feature set.
The features include the ability to accurately measure scene temperatures from -20 °C to 550 °C, provide per pixel temperature at a rate of 60 fps, apply custom color palettes to a scene based on temperature thresholds, and configure regions of interest for thermal triggers. All features come standard with pre-calibrated lens options of 40°, 24°, or 9° degree horizontal field of view.
